“It is something that has troubled me this whole year. It has robbed me of my spiritual peace and tranquility. Ever since that pilgrimage, I have never forgotten Fatima. What Sister Lucy told me has become a weight on my heart. I sought to convince myself that it was all an illusion. I prayed to forget about it…The thought was just too huge, too embarrassing, too contrary to my whole being. It was unthinkable, and yet Sister Lucy’s prediction has turned out to be true. Here I am. I am Pope…If I live, I shall return to Fatima to consecrate Russia to the Blessed Virgin, in accordance with the instructions She gave to Sister Lucy.”
Pope John Paul I didn’t live. After discovering that over 100 members of the Roman Curia were high-ranking Freemasons, including his own Vatican Secretary of State Cardinal Jean-Marie Villot, Pope John Paul I planned to purge the Vatican of its corruption, but died mysteriously before he could, after only 33 days in office."
